Lots of people showed interest in working on this, though as far as I
know no one stepped forward to take a lead. I suggest someone
creates a _minimal_ mail.inc first. As soon that is in place,
everyone can submit patches to extend the mail queue functionality.
A minimal mail.inc implements a mail queue, an mail-function, a cron-
function, and a setting to throttle the rate of outgoing mails. The
mail-function' should have two modes: 'send mail later', 'send mail
now'. Regardless of this mode, the accounting should be correct. We
can worry about HTML-mail, embedding images, bounces in subsequent
Please raise your hand if you commit to working on this in the next
few weeks/days. Thanks.
